Just in time for Philly Beer Week!

May 23rd, 2012

We are introducing 3 new micro brews from Japan. It took months, but finally they are here/

We have:
Echigo Red Ale – rich ale with just a kiss of hops. We have carried their Lager and their Stout for some time. The red ale is the perfect middle to these wonderful beers.

Tama no Megumi – pale ale that has been bottled conditioned, a sour orange nose with a richly dense beer

Ozeno Yukidoke – an IPA with distinct citrus notes with a round finish and a hoppy bitter finish

Come and try these truly unique beers. Supplies are very limited.
